Zeus named one of the top high-growth technology companies in the UK by The European Tech Tour

CAMBRIDGE, UK – 4 May 2010 – The European Tech Tour, an independent association dedicated to technology innovation, has named Zeus Technology, the only pure software-based application traffic management (application delivery controller) company, one of the UK and Ireland’s most promising high growth technology companies.

The awards, revealed at a gala dinner at the Royal Courts of Justice in London, recognize the region’s most promising high-growth, early and expansion stage technology companies. Zeus was selected by an exclusive selection committee comprised of senior global venture capital and technology industry leaders. The 30 selected companies from England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland and Northern Ireland will be presenting their business plans to a panel of investors bidding for over €10 billion of available investment funds.

Victor Basta, president of the UK and Ireland Tech Tour, comments, “We had over 250 entries for this year’s technology finalists and so choosing just thirty was a difficult decision. Zeus’ entry stood out as a company that is leading the soft ADC market against global competition, with an exceptional record of innovation. We wish them the best of luck as they continue to grow much faster than their marketplace.”

Paul Brennan, CEO, Zeus Technology comments on his company being selected, “We are delighted about being selected by such a prestigious group of judges. These awards are a fantastic way of rewarding innovation in technology as well as kick starting the UK economy. We are looking forward to the next round where we will be presenting our business plan to the panel, and are optimistic about the next stage of company growth.”
